> This is a hacked up prototype!  It works but I'm not sure how to get this to a committable
> The patch invokes mlock() (tested only on Linux), locking pages from the terms dictionary
file that hold terms for a specified field.  You can only do this with MMapDirectory.
> I used this to lock pages for the "id" field in the NRT stress test; it's an alternative
to MemoryCodec.  But, it requires you set up the OS to allow the app/user to lock pages in
> It works very well in reducing the NRT reopen latency even when large merges are running...
